Safety Tips for Driving Under the Influence
Report drunk or unsafe drivers immediately. Law enforcement in the State of Alaska takes this very seriously. Call 911 if you feel someone should not be behind the wheel. Even if you are unsure, it is better to be safe than sorry. You could prevent a serious accident from happening down the road.
Accidents caused by drunk drivers or those who are under the influence of alcohol or other drugs can be devastating. Sadly, accidents such as this one happen more often than they should. If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident where alcohol and drugs were a factor, contact a personal injury attorney who can help you get the compensation you deserve.
